    computer is usually very slow to get onto internet, we may have to try several times because the mouse does not respond and it stops whilst trying to do this. The mouse does not move at all. This also happens when we are in other programs as well, for example wordpad. To turn computer off and try again, we try the ctrl alt delete buttons and this usually wont work, so we just turn the computer of using the on/of button. It is very frustrating.

This sounds like a faulty mouse, to test this plug another mouse into the pc and see if you get the same results

First make sure is not the computer frozen, by pressing the Windows key on keyboard, and if the menu comes up then is not frozen. Next, if not frozen move the mouse to another USB port, if frozen restart the computer by pressing and holding power for 5 seconds.

Hi my Dell OptiPlex GX270 turns on but when it comes on it freezes but i cant be sure its frozen because my mouse and keyboard wont connect I orginally bought a wireless mouse and keyboard and it wouldnt...


Hello,
First off, try going to BIOS. Usually you have to tap either F2 or Delete on dell computers while booting up to enter BIOS. If you're successful, and you're in BIOS, observe for a few minutes if it will freeze while in BIOS. If it doesn't then you might need to reinstall windows. If it freezes in BIOS as well, then there's a hardware malfunction/problem. That will be the time to have a technician check the hardware on your desktop.
Regards..

Computer freezes mouse still moves. cant open programs? How do I fix this problem? What's wrong?


There are a number of reasons why your computer might freeze. And it can depend on the age of the computer as well.
The first suspect in my opinion (with not much info) is that your computer has got a virus. Or a program recently installed is crashing your system.
One way out is to boot to Safe Mode (Press F8 immediately on boot up), and then run a Virus Scan and / or uninstall the most recently installed program.

Hp s3120n slim line freezing up


Sounds like a video issue. What OS is on the machine? Try updating the video card drivers. If the OS is Windows 2000 or older, update your version of DirectX as well.
If that doesnt work, check system resources. Low memory, and low hard drive space can be a cause.
If all else fails, replace the mouse. Mice are very inexpensive now. Keep us posted.

.the mouse moves randomly across


Hi,
If mouse is moving randomly across the screen then you may have to change the mouse or the mouse pad. If system freezes automatically that is your software problem. Please install a fresh copy of windows xp or vista whatever. Hopefully it should work . thank you.......

The computer randomly freezes and you are unable to control the mouse or the keyboard.


This could be a number of problems, are you doing anything in particular when it happens, like using downloaded screensavers or website with java, or playing games. it sounds like it could bve RAM but difficult to determin without doing some checks
